JDK 8 Updates: Push Approval Request Template
Push requests for the regular JDK 8 Update Project forests (jdk8u-dev) MUST be sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list and SHOULD follow this template:
Subject: [8u$N] Request for approval for CR $NR - $Synopsis
With the body containing:
- either a link to the publicly visible bug on the bugs.sun.com site (or its equivalent), or a description of the change in case that there is no publicly visible bug to link to
- either a link to the publicly visible webrev or a link to the JDK 9 changeset, in case it's the same patch as the corresponding changeset committed for JDK 9.
- if the review is taking place somewhere else, a link to the public review thread
- if the fix has already been reviewed for inclusion into jdk8u-dev, the list of reviewers
Note that pushes to a stabilization forest require extra levels of approvals. Developers need to request a phase 2 approval in such cases.
